Redcap Phosphate Buffer Solution

Reputable catering operators in the hospitality industry will have a strict regime in place when it comes to dealing with cleaning products, with employees properly trained and COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) aware before being allowed any contact with hazardous substances.

However, it’s a fact that the risk of a chemical related burns is greatly increased when employed in the catering and hospitality sector. When used carelessly, cleaning products can result in a chemical related burn – which would need immediate and effective first aid treatment on-site.

The harm caused by acid and alkali splashes deserve an effective first aid treatment.

Until now, there has not been a cost-effective medical solution to treat acid or alkali related injuries; so current protocols still recommend the sole use of water. However, independent test data has confirmed that one 500ml bottle of Redcap is significantly more effective at neutralising acid and alkali splashes than comparable water treatment and is available at a fraction of the cost of other pH neutralising products on the market.

Redcap is a Phosphate Buffer Solution which helps to actively neutralise pH values while flushing contaminants off the skin. Redcap is available in a range of single bottles or in a convenient Chemical Splash Station, which is perfect for a wide range of public or industrial locations and situations. For fast and efficient irrigation of acid, alkali or particulate contamination; Redcap Phosphate Buffer Solution is the ideal solution.
